A downloadable Visual Novel for Windows and macOS

PLEASE READ: This game contains graphic content and topics that some users may be sensitive to. If you don't want to be exposed to certain topics, please visit https://www.tumblr.com/blog/liliesanddaruma-warnings for more information.

When Sayuri Sato moves away from her childhood home, she leaves behind her first love; an unrequited crush on her female best friend! She vows to never again let her heart get broken: "I'm going to become someone who isn't afraid to confess their love!!"

Play from Sayuri's point of view as she navigates difficult choices about romance and her life. The player will make choices that will teach Sayuri the meaning behind queer romances, shyness, trauma, bullying, demisexuality, family, and the words, "I love you."

This visual novel made in Renpy is only 2/3 complete! I wasn't able to finish before the jam deadline. If it's going to bother you not to finish right away, please wait a few months! I should have the rest ready to go soon.

(Note: this is a rebranded and more polished version of my game uploaded last year, My Sweet Daruma.)

I love this game. I really like how you focused on all the confusing thoughts going through you head all the time. - That sounded Weird

Anyways I really liked the game. I cant wait for it to be finished!

Wow. it was nice. Very nice game :)

Well I've just finished it. And I can't wait to see the rest of the story. Yeah... Very good story. I hope it will be done soon :)

Do I need to play the previous game to play this one ?

Nope! The game starts out the same, and where the routes branch is what makes this game different from the last. 

IM INLOVE WITH THE GAME AND i really liked penny(aoi  now xD) and hana's route^^ im SOOO excited to play da whole game when it's done. 

This game is astounding. You are doing amazing work, and I adore your characters.

Ooh, a game with demisexuality in it! Will there be a mac release?

Renpy automatically gives me a mac build, but I'm not sure that it will work if I generate and upload it from a pc. I've tried uploading it. Let me know if it runs for you!
